The Travel + Leisure has included Armenia in the list of 50 best places to travel in 2019.
The New-York-based magazine reminds that “this past spring Armenians voted in a new, more liberal government," adding that "the resulting energy has made the country all the more inviting to travelers."
The magazine points to the existence of world-class hostels and a number of restaurants in Armenia.
“Armenia has a famously beautiful countryside landscape, and there’s no better way to see it than on foot. The Transcaucasian Trail passes the spa town of Dilijan, the bucolic Dilijan National Park, and a pair of 10th-century Christian monasteries,” Travel + Leisure notes.
Other placed the magazine advises to visit in 2019 include the Adirondacks (New York), Alberta (Canada), Alsace (France), the Andaman Islands, Berlin (Germany), Brisbane (Australia), Cambodia, Cambridge (England), Egypt, Etyek (Hungary), the Florida Keys, Georgia, the Grand Canyon, Guatemala, Helsinki (Finland), Ischia (Italy), Israel, Los Cabos (Mexico), Madeira (Portugal), Matera (Italy), Montecito (California), Prague (Czech Republic), Puerto Rico, Langkawi (Malaysia) and others.
